"Pakistan’s main government prosecutor on the Benazir Bhutto murder case has been shot dead in Islamabad, police said. State prosecutor Chaudhry Zulfiqar Ali was shot multiple times by gunmen on Friday as he was driving to the next hearing in the murder case of the former prime minister, who was assassinated in 2007.
His bodyguard was also wounded in the attack and a woman was killed when Zulfiqar lost control of his vehicle, police said.
The attack happened in broad daylight in a busy street in a middle class neighbourhood of the Pakistani capital.
Zulfiqar Ali was scheduled to appear in an anti-terrorism court in the neighbouring city of Rawalpindi on Friday, according to Al Jazeera's Kamal Hyder in Islamabad. "
